Wild Kitty is a steel roller coaster located at Frontier City in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, which opened at the start of the 2013 season on April 7, 2013.

History[edit]

Wild Kitty first appeared at Elitch Gardens in Denver, Colorado. The ride reopened on May 27, 1995 under the name Wild Kitten. The Wild Kitten name stayed until Six Flags purchased the park and themed the ride to Great Chase in 1999 after the Looney Tunes. In 2007, when PARC Management bought the park from Six Flags, Warner Bros. was dropped from the park. With the removal of the Looney Tunes theme, the ride was renamed to Tombstone Tumbler. Then in 2008 the park renamed the ride to Cactus Coaster.[1]

In late 2012, Cactus Coaster was removed from Elitch Gardens and was transported to replace a coaster at Frontier City, Wild Kitty which operated from 1995-2012.[2]

Ride[edit]

This is a simple junior roller coaster with a single lift hill and several small bunny hills laid out in an oval. The train circuits this simplistic layout three times.
